CORRECTION : I just learned it was actually my sister Jill who took this photo and colored it. (But we get our photography genes from my Dad, so not a far stretch there!)
Since I'm deployed right now, my husband Martin drove out to my parents house in Ohio with our daughter Claire to celebrate Independence Day. My sister Jill took this photo of Claire during the parade there. She turned it into a black and white, keeping the flag in color. My daughter was just learning about the American flag when I left to deploy, so I'm sure she was thrilled to see so many of them that day. Martin said she kept pointing them out the whole day, telling everyone it was Mommy's flag!
